Origins Ganesh Ji Ki Aarti

Ganesh Ji Ki Aarti: The origin of this festival rests on the Hindu scriptures, which tell us the story of the god Ganesha.

According to legend, the god Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction, was far away in war. His wife Parvati, who was a goddess in his own right, wanted to take a bath, but there was no guard to watch the door of her room, she came up with the idea of raising a son to guard her.

Parvati then created Ganesha from the sandalwood paste she used to bathe and gave him life within a figure. Then she placed him at the door and instructed him not to enter. Meanwhile, the god Shiva returned from the battle but as Ganesha did not know him he would not let him enter Parvati’s room. Shiva, enraged by this fact, took his sword and cut off Ganesha’s head.

When Parvati went out and saw Ganesha beheaded she went into a rage. Then she acquired the form of the goddess Kali and threatened to destroy the three existing worlds, heaven, and earth. Seeing how sullen she was, the other gods were really fearful and Shiva, in an attempt to calm Parvati, transmitted to the crowd that they would bring the head of the first living thing that appeared from the north (propitious direction associated with wisdom). The first living being that appeared was an elephant. Then they brought the head of the elephant and Shiva placed it in the trunk of the son of Parvati giving him life. Parvati became very happy and embraced her son, the elephant-headed child Shiva called Ganesha.
